Include MarShon Brooks, w/ some first round draft picks and you got a deal.

Not even the Wizards fans talk like this when they are a pathetic team almost every season. You don't see them talking about trading John Wall for Kemba Walker.

I'm shocked at the things that are being posted.


as far as the rumor what do you think

Especially when Howard has nowhere to go. Besides Howard walking is better than taking that awful nets deal

Yes because a no defense center, late picks and a bench player is great value for the leagues best center

Sounds reasonable

Running out of patience for Dwight. Besides, Atlanta might get him during free agency to pair him up with his BFF (getting Dwight will most likely convince Smith to stay) , and that leaves the Lakers nothing.

Pau would finally be playing in the low block. Defense would be an issue, but what Lakers need right now is offensive chemistry. And they can't have that with Dwight

Ugh.

Pau has had multiple chances to play on the low block, with AND without Dwight Howard in the game...and he chose not to. He refuses to do it when Howard is on the bench. He's not going to flip the switch, just because Dwight is gone.

And a lot of you act like you can't stick two guys on the low block. They don't have to be standing directly in it at the same time, but you can separate them by 10 feet and find success with a double post motion offense, but it's apparent that D'Antoni has no idea what that is.

Running out of patience? It sounds to me like you're a bigger Nash and Gasol fan, actually, after reading a few of your posts. Dwight is putting up his career averages, and quite frankly, he's been the best center in the NBA since Yao Ming went down...easily.

Best center? :laughing:
Lakers aren't getting Lopez? No reasonanle-minded Laker fan would want him and his contract here.

Not this season.

Pau still sucks, though

Howard's first season in a Lakers uniform is halfway over and there are still more questions than answers.

Will Howard re-sign as a free agent at the end of the season? After a half-season of evidence, will the Lakers want to re-sign him and make him the face of the franchise moving forward once Bryant retires? Can this season possibly take a turn for the better? Or, maybe more aptly, can this season get any worse?

Not this season.

He is ranked #2 defensively, among all centers (Chandler #1 right now).

Also, he's one of just six players in NBA HISTORY that is putting up 17+ PPG, 12+ RPG, and shooting 58% or better from the floor (and he has done this five times in his career). Those other players are Wilt, Shaq, Barkley, Gilmore and Williams. He's doing that this season.

No big man is better than Dwight right now. None of them.

I'll re-post what I posted in the "Steve Kerr Says Trade Dwight" thread.

You don't trade Dwight.

At the very worst, Dwight leaves and you're left with a chunk of money to spend on rebuilding the team in a different direction, or you start clearing room for 2014.

A fish rots from the head down. D'Antoni and this non-existent "system" everyone talks about needs to be the first thing to go. Yes, the Lakers would be paying two fired coaches, but that's the price you pay for making terrible coaching decisions, they know that.

Trading Dwight would be one of the worst knee-jerk reactions they could have to this abysmal season.

Are you guys seriously saying trade Dwight over Gasol? Gasol AND D'Antoni is the reason Dwight isn't able to operate in the post so well. No damn spacing at all. We need a stretch four that is not a liability on defense. We need an athletic wingman that can stretch the floor as well and also play defense. We need bench players that bring night in and night out. We have to many problems and we can't fix them all.

Edited by Ham, January 22, 2013 - 09:02 AM.

Mike D'Antoni is GARBAGE.

He has the numbers, but he isn't making much impact this season. He's still better than most, but there are plenty of centers who are playing better than him this season
I've taken to consideration his back injury. But I just don't think it's worth it to risk losing him for nothing

If you could convince the Celtics to deal Rondo, that'd be great, but I think that ship has sailed.

They're leaning much more towards dealing Pierce at the moment.

We keep Howard, but if there is a way to get Love here my ears are open, i've always wanted Love to be a Laker.

With his injury, there probably is a way, but I don't know if other teams would be willing to help the Lakers so much right now, unless it's a majorly imbalanced deal.

The rest of the NBA is loving what is going on with the Lakers right now, loving it.
